I installed Win7 x64 (with SP1 slipstreamed in it) from a CD that had been created from an ISO file. I have that file in a folder, with two subfolders, one containing KB3138612, and the other KB3145739. According to the readme I had left in the folder, the two patches help to avoid extra-long patch update times. So I installed the OS (including SP1), then the KB file you're referring to, then the other, then I let it go online and download/install everything. Pretty close to what you're describing.

At this point, the laptop is stuck in a System Repair (no error found) / Reboot loop.

As others have said, I've already spent way more time on this than any of it is worth.

Straw Poll

When building an application, when is the most important time to consider the User Experience?
They are the ones we write code for, right?
